05/13/2016 Texas Hippie Coalition, Sons Of Texas, Dear Mr. Dead (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Saturday, May 14th, 2016

TEXAS! Obviously the theme of the night. I was stoked to see Sons of Texas, as I’d been spinning Baptized in the Rio Grande since it came out. And they rocked. Lots of intensity, they played all the heavy stuff (none of the ballads), and kept the crowd into it the whole time. Not a […]

05/06/2016 Like A Storm, Devil You Know, Oni (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

Montage billed this as a double headliner – as in they booked both Like A Storm and Devil You Know both on their own headlining runs the same night. Devil You Know got their support act on the bill too, and Oni was a damn cool opener. How many metal bands have you ever heard […]

09/18/2015 GWAR, Butcher Babies (Rochester, NY @ Water Street Music Hall)

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

When I saw this was announced, I knew I had to see them again. It had been since August of 2007 that I’d seen GWAR, so despite still not knowing any songs beyond Saddam A Go Go, I knew I’d have a blast. I got in during Butcher Babies set, and as a metal band […]

08/15/2015 Psychostick, Wolfborne, Beneath Hells Sky, Murder In Rue Morgue (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Sunday, August 16th, 2015

I ended up meeting a buddy of mine at this show, so both Derek and I didn’t really pay attention to the openers all that much. Wolfbourne was a Canadian straight-ahead heavy rock band, and the tunes weren’t too bad, nothing that wouldn’t be out of place on Octane. They were pretty decent. I had […]

08/08/2015 Coal Chamber, Fear Factory, Jasta (Rochester, NY @ Water Street Music Hall)

Monday, August 10th, 2015

This was a fun one, and a show I was looking forward to for quite awhile. A chance to see Jamey Jasta do some solo stuff, another chance to see Fear Factory (this time with Dino), and while I was never a big fan, get my nu-metal on and see Coal Chamber for the first […]

08/02/2015 Incubus, Deftones (Darien, NY @ Darien Lake Performing Arts Center)

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

Just a few days after the big Slipknot / Lamb of God show, I was right back at Darien Lake for another twin bill. Instead of 50/50, however, this was about a 95/5 in favor of the Deftones. There was an opening band [The Bots], but I didn’t see them, making it into the venue […]

07/29/2015 Slipknot, Lamb Of God, Bullet For My Valentine, Motionless In White (Darien, NY @ Darien Lake Performing Arts Center)

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

This was the show of the summer. Hands down. Billed as the “Summer’s Last Stand” tour, it lived up to the name. I sprung for pit, as I’m way too antsy to see Slipknot and LoG in seats. The pit section was fairly empty as Motionless in White came on, but everyone that was there […]

07/22/2015 10 Years, Nonpoint, The Family Ruin (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

[A Vintage Year and Awaken The Empire were also on the bill, but I missed them.] I had this date circled on the calendar for a little bit, as Nonpoint is always a good show (and I’m certainly biased from meeting them back in December at this very venue!), and I became a 10 Years […]

07/16/2015 The Tea Party, Big Wreck (Lewiston, NY @ Artpark)

Monday, July 20th, 2015

Ah yes, another Tea Party show, another instance of getting “our” band back together as well. Mostly. As we had all assumed that there would be lawn seats available, no one bought tickets right away. So naturally, Artpark *didn’t* sell lawn for this one, meaning we all had to get seats. Due to my own […]

07/07/2015 Powerman 5000, SOiL, Without Regret (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

As an unabashed nu-metal kid, one would think a show like this would be a must-see for me, but truthfully neither SOiL nor Powerman were ever super-high on my list. I liked the singles well enough, but that was about it. However, when the show is practically in your backyard, and there’s nothing else doing […]
